Nicki Minaj trends on Twitter after giving 'American Idol' contestants an array of nicknames

By Gina DiFalco,

On Wednesday’s new episode of American Idol, Nicki Minaj once again got people talking and her antics started trending on Twitter.

As the contestants tried out, one by one, Minaj seemed to have a nickname or a pet name for each one.

After calling contestants everything from “Ladybug,” to "Gumby" to "Finger Licking Good,” #NickiNickNames started trending on Twitter.

"I'm just gonna call everyone either Blondie, Gumby, Fingerlickingewd, or Little Ladybug from now on. Oh nicki..," one fan wrote, MTV reports, while another wrote "#NickiNames Is Trending I Want One @NICKIMINAJ.”

Later on in the show, Minaj even got a nickname from none other than the 3 year old daughter of one of the singing hopefuls. Dun Dun was the name that was picked out for her.

Also, last night was the show that featured the highly talked about scuffle between Minaj and fellow judge Mariah Carey. It all started when the “Super Bass” singer thought Carey and Randy Jackson were being too hard on contestant Summer.
